A friend and I went to this Wednesday night game only because someone gave us free tickets. There was a pre-game Pakistani Night concert. The sparse crowd very rudely booed the musicians. Having to work the next day, I departed sometime in the sixth or seventh with the Padres leading the Mets 5-2. My friend, who remained to the end, called me the next day to say that he went down from the upper level to the loge unchallenged, and then caught a foul ball pitched by reliever Mike Holtz that went off the bat of Timo Perez. The ball had a large black scuff mark from the bat's impact. The following May, we came to Shea two hours before gametime to try to get Timo- or any Met- to autograph the ball. Unlike in past years, we were not allowed down to field level before the game as we did not have field level tickets. Seems like only the RICH can try for autographs. We still have the ball- maybe eBay might be interested?

Please note:
We're looking for your comments about this specific game. We've had people use this space to share their thoughts on how the current season is going, or on ways that the Mets can improve the team. Such comments, unless in the context of this particular game, will be considered off-topic and will be removed.

Example One
The Mets suck! They need to trade Smith and get somebody like Jones.
This comment is off-topic and will be removed. It has nothing to do with any specific game. But here's an acceptable alternative:

Example Two
The Mets suck! Smith made three errors in this game, and hit into a double play, and the Mets blew a 5-0 lead. They need to get rid of Smith and get somebody like Jones.
See the difference? Here you're getting the same point across, but it's in the proper context. We wouldn't consider this message to be off-topic, and we would let it remain.

We do appreciate anybody who takes the time to share their thoughts on our site, and we hate to remove anybody's postings. But if we didn't take steps to ensure that only on-topic messages were retained, The Ultimate Mets Database would become a confusing jumble of unrelated comments, and would thus be less enjoyable to visitors like you.

Thank you!
